Protecting your marble and granite is an important way to maintain the original quality and lustre of your investment. Here are some ideas on protecting your natural stone:
Sealers are the most popular method of protecting granite and marble. Both solvent and water-based sealers are available, and work by penetrating into the pores of the stone. This helps to build an invisible barrier that allows for easier cleaning, protection against scratching/stains and creating a harder, less slippery surface. Sealers are easy to apply and is recommended to be re-applied based on usage. Generally a good rule of thumb to follow is the more traffic on the granite or marble surface, the more frequently you should apply the sealer.
For daily care, dish soap diluted with water is best. This will help preserve your marble and granite.
